Netflix has released some exclusive footage of the long-awaited Season 4 of Ozark. The most current season was released on March 27, 2020.
Season 3 of Ozark is considered its best so far, scoring a 98 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The binge-worthy series found its footing with the action-packed season that introduced Ben Davis, played by Tom Pelphrey, in a star-making performance.
In the season, Laura Linney also earned critical praise for her portrayal of Wendy Byrde.
As previously reported by Monsters & Critics, Netflix announced that Ozark Season 4 would be the final installment in the popular series.
It was rumored to get a 2021 release date; however, fans will have to wait until 2022 to get the premiere.
Watch the Season 4 of Ozark first scene
In the official first look of Ozark Season 4, the season starts where the current finale ended.
In Season 3, cartel attorney Helen Pierce told her boss Navarro that she wanted to take over the Byrde business.
However, Wendy and Marty formulated a plan for the Mexcian cartel boss to see their value by ending the war with his rival, the Laguna cartel.
Marty provided evidence to FBI agent Maya Miller that led to the arrest of Navarro’s rivals. But, after the cartel boss invites Marty, Wendy, and Helen to his son’s baptism in Mexico, he kills Helen in the shocking twist as he promotes Marty and Wendy.
In the first look, Omar Navarro returns to the party while Marty and Wendy are seen cleaning Helen’s blood from them in a bathroom, visibly still shocked by the events that took place.
When does Ozark Season 4 come out?
The fourth season consists of 14 episodes and will be split into two parts. The exclusive first look reveals that both parts will premiere in 2022.
Previous seasons featured ten episodes; therefore, it is unclear how Netflix will split the final season.
